I want to help women navigate the legal process by making an informed decision before they decide to divorce, not only after they have started divorce litigation. Too often I see women assessing the critical information after they’ve begun the legal process.  It is so much better to have at least some of the information …

I’m a Second Saturday Leader because in my 39 years as a financial planner I have seen the bad results of hastily made, uninformed decisions by divorcing spouses. Hopefully, by bringing Second Saturday to our area less of those bad decisions will be made. One of my fun activities is as a golf rules official …

My motivation for getting involved with Second Saturday came after I was working as a court-appointed Real Estate Agent. I quickly noticed the importance of educating divorcing couples of their options when a home sale is going to be part of their division of assets. A home is a multifaceted asset and “selling it” has …

Mindy Helfrich

Being a Second Saturday Leader is essential because I genuinely believe in educating people before making significant financial decisions. After watching a family member go through a divorce late in life, I saw how complex the process could be for the entire family. Dealing with divorce involves more than emotional complications; the financial situation is …

Divorce is traumatic. People come to our workshop when they are at their most vulnerable.

I am a grandmother of six (okay, they’re step-grandchildren, but …

Big passions for me include education and women’s economic self-sufficiency, both of which made Second Saturday really appeal to me.  As a CPA (license inactive) I have the forensic accounting skills that so many divorcing people need to help them understand their financial situation.  It is really meaningful to me to be able to have …

Why Second Saturday?  I chose a career in the legal field because I wanted to help people. Divorce is a tough subject to deal with. It is emotional. It is stressful. It is expensive. Many people do not need an attorney, or cannot afford an attorney, but just need some help. As a Second Saturday …
